Dariya the maid getting a boy to touch her large breast is just one incident that occurs when Yohan and Victor infiltrate two families, forcing young Liza and blind Ekaterina to appear in porn, but they are not so innocent themselves.
Sanja the Bandit after a particularly vicious shootout, stumbles into the musician Oleg at the local banya. Following a retelling of a semi-mythological story, the pair decide to make a pilgrimage to a "bell-tower of happiness".

During the bloody war in Chechnya, a British couple and two Russian soldiers are taken hostage by Chechen rebels. Two of the hostages are then released to bring the money for the British woman who is forced to wait for the ransom.
He has no name. He always wears a hat, even in bed
He always wears a hat,even in bed after his operations in a mental hospital.
All he wants is a place to live but the huge city of St Petersburg is as cold and unwelcoming as it was to the characters of Gogol and Dostoyevsky. Nobody wants to know him except a blind beggar with a donkey and an aristocratic woman turned prostitute.
